Hooray! This project is fully funded

I teach science to 9th-12th graders in a small, rural High School in the mountains of North Carolina. We don't have money for "extras" and it's difficult to ask the students to provide them as well as most of them are from very needy households. Most, if they live at home with their parents, are on welfare or work at seasonal jobs.

I just completed one of the most AWESOME workshops this summer on the Engineering Design Process and developed some great activities that will "grab" the students attention and will help them "see" the relevance of what they are learning in my classroom!

In order to be able to do the best job in teaching the Engineering Design Process, each student (and I will have 200 students, total, for the upcoming school year), each student will need an engineering notebook in order to document their learning, and do so in the correct format. By using the graph notebook, I believe, students will see the value and take their learning, during each of the activities, seriously, thus truly "owning" their own education.

The job market is looking for some real engineers. What a great way to begin building some basic skills and, hopefully, encourage more young people to enter the field better prepared! You can really help me make a difference!!
